Call for PapersWoLLIC <http://wollic.org/> is an annual international forum
on inter-disciplinary research involving formal logic, computing and
programming theory, and natural language and reasoning. Each meeting
includes invited talks and tutorials as well as contributed papers. The
Seventeenth WoLLIC will be held in Brasília, Brazil, from July 6th to 9th,
2010. It is sponsored by theAssociation for Symbolic
Logic<http://www.aslonline.org/> (ASL),
the Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics
<http://www.cin.ufpe.br/~igpl> (IGPL),
the The Association for Logic, Language and
Information<http://www.folli.org/> (FoLLI),
the European Association for Theoretical Computer
Science<http://www.eatcs.org/> (EATCS),
the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação <http://www.sbc.org.br/> (SBC), and
the Sociedade Brasileira de Lógica <http://www.cle.unicamp.br/sbl/> (SBL).

*Special Event*
2010 will mark the 50-th anniversary of the first publication of Paul
Halmos' classic book *Naïve Set Theory* by Springer Verlag. WoLLIC will
celebrate this by screening the documentary about Paul Halmos which was
directed by George Csicsery: "I want to be a mathematician. A conversation
with Paul Halmos"http://zalafilms.com/films/halmos.html

*Paper submission*
Contributions are invited on all pertinent subjects, with particular
interest in cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not exclusive areas of
interest are: foundations of computing and programming; novel computation
models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and belief; formal methods in
software and hardware development; logical approach to natural language and
reasoning; logics of programs, actions and resources; foundational aspects
of information organization, search, flow, sharing, and protection. Proposed
contributions should be in English, and consist of a scholarly exposition
accessible to the non-specialist, including motivation, background, and
comparison with related works. They must not exceed 10 pages (in font 10 or
higher), with up to 5 additional pages for references and technical
appendices. The paper's main results must not be published or submitted for
publication in refereed venues, including journals and other scientific
meetings. It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the
meeting by one of its authors. Papers must be submitted electronically at
the WoLLIC 2010 EasyChair website. (Please go to
http://wollic.org/wollic2010/instructions.html for instructions.) A title
and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by February 28, and the
full paper by March 7 (firm date). Notifications are expected by April 12,
and final papers for the proceedings will be due by May 3 (firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2010, including both invited and contributed
papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in
Springer's LNCS <http://www.springer.com/lncs> series (TBC). In addition,
abstracts will be published in the Conference Report section of the Logic
Journal of the IGPL, and selected contributions will be published as a
special post-conference WoLLIC 2010 issue of a scientific journal (soon to
be announced).
